I'd like to start by thanking all of you who've posted comments on my blog – it's so good to hear from you.
Thanks for all your inspirational mottos
A particular mention to Margaret, who sent the most wonderful quote in response to my request for your favourite saying or motto. She told me 'If you see someone without a smile, give them yours.' Perfect! If you try it out in practice, it's amazing how often that missing smile is suddenly recovered. An unexpected smile can really lift the spirits.
I remember when my mum was trying to develop a little elegance in me and sent me to ballet classes. At the end of the first term the only positive remark in my report was 'Has a lovely smile.' Needless to say, my dancing career never got off the ground but the smile has stayed with me and I joined the swimming club instead and found much more success there!
See Uri Geller on the Morning Show
Uri Geller is a guest on tomorrow's (Friday's) Morning Show. He'll be bringing some of his stunning rock crystal jewellery and also his book and CD set about the power of the mind. I've always got on well with Uri, maybe because I was born in Sonning-on-Thames which is where he now lives – it's given us a bond!
Uplifting quotes from Uri's book
I hadn't seen his book and CD set before today, but I've found some inspiring quotes that I thought I'd share with you. In fact, I will try to bring you my saying of the week on a regular basis, and I would love for you to send me any you'd like to share, be they profound, motivating or funny.
One of my favourites from Uri's book is a Japanese proverb – 'Time spent laughing is time spent with the gods.'
Following on from my sunshine and shadows motto, how about 'In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it' by Shakti Gawain.
And finally, from Henry Ford, 'Whether you think you can, or think you can't, you are right.'
Do join Sara and me on the morning show tomorrow to see what Uri has to say.
